I wonder..


“ Most citizens in a democratic society like Australia long only to be left alone and for their leaders to protect them from the evils of the world. They seek to flee the bad, but expect that the democratic state will play a role in enabling them to do so.” John Howard and the Art of Democratic Leadership, Gregory Melleuish-Quadrant July-August 2006, pg 11

My paraphrase:

Most church members long only to be left alone and for their ministers/pastors to protect them from the evils of the world. They seek to flee the bad, but expect that the church will play a role in enabling them to do so.

To harsh I think...
